New WBF Victory Point scales come into force

The World Bridge Federation has issued new recommended Victory Point scales, and these came into force in EBU events on 1st September 2013. To help tournament directors get to grips with them we have produced a calculator tool which will give the scale (continuous, discrete and for triangular matches) for any number of boards. The EBU will be using the continuous scale for the Premier League and other trials, and the discrete scale for all other events.
